some ideas forward about tax cuts and job creation. those who are undecided or leaning toward obama are saying they want to know how he gets this done if he has the same makeup of congress the second time around. he spent so much time saying congress has been the impediment. these candidates are spending millions of dollars on this home stretch. we're seeing it here in central florida. it's remarkable. we're going to north carolina next, and then virginia and finally ohio. right now, you've done the math a million ways, what matters the most? which matters the most? >> you're in florida right now and right now it is leaning also slightly towards mitt romney. that is a good sign for mitt romney. you're heading up to north carolina, right now we have flipped that to mitt romney's call just this past week it was a tossup state well, decided to turn it into a mitt romney win or at least that's what we think right now. it boils down to two very important states, virginia, very important state for mitt romney. he has to win it. but more importantly, he has to win ohio. >> candy, good to s
out of. so general ly speaking, this is advantage obama, because he has had job growth since he has come into office with the exception of a few months, but, you know, if i were working for the romney came pain, i would say, really? 7.9% unemployment, and job growth that is not anywhere close to what you are saying it is going to be over the next four years and why should we listen to you about that when you have not done it in this period of time. and then the issue of quality of jobs. president obama can say that he has replaced and more every single job that was lost on his watch, because of a recession that he didn't recreate, but presidential candidate romney says, it is not enough. these are not great quality jobs. so i said earlier today that the revisions to august and september and then the new number for october, 171,000, it is in the vicinity of good job creation. plus 200,000 a month would be good job creation. in august we got 192, and then in september down to 171, and that is in the vicinity and going this the right direction, but i dare say that this is fun by both s
-- favorable job rating, 48% unfavourable. barack obama is 49 percent favorable, 48% unfavourable. >> woodruff: exactly the same. >> right direction for the country, 41% then, 41% now. and would you be pleased positive if the president were re-elected, 50% said yes then, 50% say yes now. so and george w. bush won with 50.7%. i think the biggest event quite beyond either party's control is obviously the tragic of sandy's storm, the death and devastation it left in its wake. but at a time, judy, only elected executives, mayor, governors and presidents are legitimate spokespeople at a time like this. it is interesting, i didn't hear a single grover norquist small government champion at the time when the storm comes down and we're looking for help, we're looking for whether it's c-1 10b, 130s to bring in equipment, to deflood the city, all the way around. and i think the president stepped up and he got an unanticipated validation from governor christie. one of mitt romney's strongest supporters, the keynoter at the convention said the president has been excellent. he's been gone beyond, it's been
and september were revised upward. the job numbers helped president obama make the case about the improving economy. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we hired that companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> with only four days left on the campaign trail, the candidates were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. first here in hilliard ohio in the center of the state, then to springfield then to lima, ohio. mitt romney was not going to be outdone. here's another romney campaign rock concert and victory rally outside cincinnati. romney was also in wisconsin this morning portraying himself as the candidate of change. >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want more of the same or do you want real change? and we pick real change. >> do you want 32 more months of private sector job growth? romney has a funny way of showing change, doesn
rate went up as more people looked for work. president obama hald the job growth while republican mitt romney said rising unemployment proves the president's policies have failed. and in the northeast there were growing demands to restore basic services in the wake of hurricane sandy. is politicking from the pulpit aropriate? we examine that on-line. kwame holman explains >> holman: a group of pastors wants the right to endorse political candidates, despite an i.r.s. rule prohibiting it. watch a video about the debate. and on "art beat," we look at a new translation of "the inferno" from poet mary jo bang that offers up a modern look at dante's epic. all that and more is on our web site, newshour.pbs.org. judy. >> woodruff: and that's the newshour for tonight. on monday, we'll wrap up the final day of campaigning and report on the candidates' last push in ohio. i'm judy woodruff. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. "washington week" can be seen later this evening on most pbs stations. we'll see you online, and again here monday evening. have a nice weekend, and don't forget to set your cl
. >> peter, you're a conservative and you say, quote, if president obama is re-elected, the jobs picture will worsen. but it's been a good week of reports for obama. home prices are up. consumer confidence hit its highest level in four years. incomes and spending are up. how do you still, peter, make the case that the u.s. economy is broken? >> well, we're just not grow in at the pace we should. the obama administration has sold america on the notion this is the worst crisis since the great depression. when mr. reagan took office we had double-digit inflation, double-digit unemployment and the jobless rate peaked at 10.8%. when he ran for re-election, the unemployment rate was down much lower and the economy was growing at 6.3%. three times what mr. obama has accomplished. you know, if the participation rate was the same today as it was when the recovery began -- not too long ago, mr. goolsbee, the unemployment rate would be 9.6%. in fact, baby boomer's participation is actually increasing. because in this poor economy, their retirement accounts are worth so little and they're not gettin
jobs report mean for president obama and mitt romney. >> the presidential race is just several big items on ballot in maryland. the final day for early in maryland. we are at a polling site in landover. last day of early voting in maryland. see the peopllined up .ehind you you can see this very long at this learning center. this is what people are having endure on this last day of voting. of these people got here this center opened at 8:00 in the morning. far, 1000 people have cast their ballots. statewide, records are being set .votingly 8% of eligible voters in the maryland have taken this early voting opportunity. as longhey are waiting four hours. are just try to make the best of it. >> i enjoyed it, got to meet some -- got to make some new friends. not trade experience for the world. >> i do not see much stress. i think i will get in within the which i feel great about. >> if you think this line is that, keep in mind, this is just a line that wraps around the get in the front door. get in the front door, there are more lines inside. supposed to be early voting today, but becau
months, we have seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. >> obama's figure is nearly a half a million jobs short according to current bureau of labor statistics figures. >> the president said he'd cut the deficit in half. unfortunately, he doubled it. trillion-dollar deficits for the last four years. >> not true. the annual deficit was already running at $1.2 trillion when obama took office. >> reporter: how is fact checking actually done? on the last presidential debate, we watched one of the oldest fact-checking groups do their job. they are called factcheck.org, established by the university of pennsylvania. four members went to work. eugene kiely used to be a newspaper reporter. he covered congress and government for more than 20 years. he is managing this evening's fact checking. been as important or central in this campaign as the economy has been up until recently, there's some material here that we're going to have to research for first time. >> reporter: as soon as the debate begins, kiely starts to type what both candidates say. he comes across figures or comments
will look at all the obama regulations and take out those that killing jobs and killing small businesses. i will make sure taxes are globally competitive. from the beginning of our administration every entrepreneur every business person will know that the government of the united states for the first time in four years likes business and likes the jobs business can create. we have forgotten what a real recovery can look like. we forgot what americans can achieve. if we limit government rather than limiting the dreams of the american people. i will limit government. you can choose. the people of america can choose what kind of a nation we will have. they have all the information they need. this group has chosen. there are people who have not. i want them to then how they make this choice. they have the information they need. if the president were to be rewill elected he will not be able to work with congress. don't care what he says we have four years of record. he burned a lot of bridges ignoring congress, attacks congress, demonizes congress. they will not work together. we will face anoth
let's look at the evidence. jobs. president obama's argument, he's gained back every job lost under his watch. that's quite a feat, but romney says not good enough. >> we're going to create 12 million new jobs and more take-home pay. >> reporter: >> how is that possible, major economic growth. the economy grew at a 2% annual rate during the third quarter, better but not nearly enough to significantly boost hiring. romney will be much more than that to keep his jobs promise. how about housing. prices in some areas are rising, foreclosures slowing, but this is america and what will really get the economy going again is you. consumer spending rising, consumer confidence the best in four years. there's no doubt president obama inherited an economy in crisis, and his supporters will tell you he's turned things around. >> we have made real progress. >> his final argument, he deserves another four years to finish the recovery. mitt romney says his business experience and his big ideas are what america needs. you've heard their closing arguments. now it's decision time. and that makes you t
unemployment has increased. >> it's higher since obama -- >> there are fewer jobs than when obama took office, so it's not been a great improvement in the economy. we've had a very -- >>ity an indicator of which way the economy is -- is it an indicator of which way the economy is going? >> it has not healed enough, when you take into fact we spent $4.5 trillion in deficit recovery,. >> and an improvement ratio? >> not improving. >> not on that path. >> it's not on that path. >> is it an aberration? >> bureau of labor stats on this. have you requested them? >> yes, they don't tell you a lot of things. like the labor force participation rate. which has dropped toyorelatively low numbers, which makes the unemployment numbers lo better. >> in hindsight, when he critizes the last month's report. >> last month in crthe last month's report, the only reason that number got better was 582 people thousand left e the calculation, and went to work on a part-time basis, so the part-time jobs got better, bu we did not, they took these people out of ofthe denominator. >> those numbers are not that -- >> nay
and president barack obama came into office. we will hear tomorrow the new jobs report, we are creating over 100,000 jobs. 5.2 million new jobs during this barack obama president's see, under 8% unemployment rate -- during this barack obama presidency. 32 months of the private sector job growth. you compare that to where we were when bush left office and the president took office. that is a remarkable improvement. that is the pathway to recovery , and president obama has been leading that. this is no time to change course and go back to -- we don't know what we will be getting with governor romney. he was governor of massachusetts. rounding achievement was mandatory health care for everyone -- his crowning achievement. what president's day will we get from former governor romney? -- what presidency will we get? host: we will stop there. you both made your campaign statements. now we will turn it over to viewers, and if you can keep your answers a little shorter so we can get as many in. our two guests had been gracious enough to join us from the leesburg, virginia, loudoun county courthouse. abo
trail. it seems to have something for everyone. president obama is time-outing that more jobs were -- touting that more jobs have been created than were expected. romney says the overall elm ploit rate is actually up. now startshe weekend blitz and the bbc's adam brooks has been watching the reaction for us. >> the voter in the state of ohio -- >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5 1/2 million new jobs and this morning we learned the companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> new jobs were created in america in october. 171,000 of them, many in health care, retail and business services. many more people returned to the workforce, possibly a sign of economic optimism. but still these are not numbers to excite a tired and skittish electorate. mitt romney, campaigning in wisconsin, trying to erode mr. obama's support in the midwest. he took the job's numbers as support for the central plank of his campaign, but the u.s. economy has fail
. any day that we're not talking about the economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the national guardsmen, the mayors, the governors, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and
. >> michael brown, in charge of fema, is criticizing president obama. >> brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. >> brown would have said more but he was busy responding to katrina. >> garbage, crap, and nonsense. >> you're watching fox. you're hearing about a state department, the cia does nothing. >> you are misleading the american people. >> at least we don't live in swing state hell. >> jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> the biggest load of bull in the world. >> why do you say these things, mi romney? >> joe biden is using his teeth to illuminate hoboken. >> find that special someone in the early voting line. >> our destiny is in the hands of the american people. >> i will fight for you and your family every single day as hard as i know how. >> let's get to our panel, dana 34i8 bank is political columnist for "the washington post" and toure is my colleague and the co-host of "the cycle." desperate mitt, desperate measures. in your column this week you write, when the stakes are high, as they are for mr. romney, it must win ohio, the truth is o
for each campaign. president obama is talk about the new jobs, but gov. romney is focusing on the americans still look for work. here you go. >> he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare that killed jobs. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> today our businesses have created nearly a .5 million new jobs and we learned companies hired more workers in october than at anytime in the last eight months. >> today both candidates battling for the battleground states. we have team coverage. first let's get to ed henry who is traveling with the president. ed, ohio's unemployment rate is lower than the national average, and the polls indicate the president ought to be relatively happy there. >> that's right. the state unemployment right here is 7%. better than the national average. the president also believes he's gotten credit for the auto bailout. a lot of auto jobs in ohio, not just michigan. that's why he's clinging to what appears to be a slim lead. still very close. what they believe in the obama cam en, the president accused
it was obama's katrina, which it is. the jobs report is up. we will check in with karl rove and look at predictions from others as the outcome of tuesday is now pretty much at hand. joining me with reaction to all of this, radio talk show host willie billy cunningham. his radio show is heard nationally across the country on sunday nights. sir, welcome back. ju you are a great american. >> sean hannity, how are you? >> sean: after the photo op,. billy cunningham where does president obama fly? to vegas. meanwhile, it it is beginning to freeze in the northeast. people don't have heat, electricity. the gas stations that are open people are waiting six hours or long are to be able to get gas. he comes to town. he hugs chris christie, photo op and then heads off to vegas. your reaction? >> i would say a few things. number one, i think this is obama's katrina in which he is showing a complete lack of compassion. i can recall a speech he gave in denver in front of 70,000 fans in which he said if you elect me the winds will stop blowing and the oceans will not rise. what happened to the anoi
is at a virtual stand it still." unchanged at 7.9%. while the obama campaign touted the 171,000 jobs added with improved numbers in september and august. >>> we have crews spread out across the country following the campaigns on the last weekend before the election. president obama will make his first stop today and paul steinhauser following mitt romney in pennsylvania. let's start with dan in ohio. what is on the president's schedule sph. >> well, you can expect that the president will continue to hammer away at this mitt romney on the auto industry. you pointed out there at the top of the show how this was a big push by the president yesterday in going after that ad by suggesting that jobs from a jeep plant would go overseas to china and, in fact yesterday, the president was recounting that he heard that some employees had gone to their managers with concerns that they would lose their jobs through china. so, the president using this big push to show, in his words, that mitt romney is massaging the facts. so, we expect that the president will continue to make that argument here today. t
to focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on creating a obama-care to kill jobs. phe said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half but then he doubled that. then he said he would bring the unemployment rate down to 5.2% by now. we learned on friday it is 7.9%. it is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. and unemployment today is higher than when barack obama took office. by the way, he also promised he would propose a plan by now to save social security and medicare. he did not. rather, he rated $716 billion from the medicare to pay for obama-care. the list goes on. he said he would a lower health premiums by $2,000 a family. but instead they have gone up by $3,000 per family. the average american family pays $2,000 a year more for gasoline than when president obama was elected. i will mention one more thing. he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues. this is interesting. he has not met on the economy or on the budget or on jobs with the republican leader of the house or the senate since july. and so, instead of bridging the divide, he is making it
to end gridlock in congress in ohio president barack obama touted upbeat jobs numbers and also listed his foreign policy successes and the recovery of the auto industry. the american auto industry is back on top the war in afghanistan is ending al al-qaeda has been decimated. the president holds a slight lead in most battleground states and is expected to make one more stop in most of those states including florida and new hampshire and colorado and nevada. romney will visit many of the same states the final jobs report is largely positive. employers added 171,000 new jobs beating analysts' expectations. experts say it will improve the job market with more people trying to find jobs. early gains from the jobs report on wall street fizzled, they each lost 1%. just one more day left for early voting in chicago suburbs if you haven't registered to vote you can do so tomorrow you have to go in person to the chicago election board. between 9 and 5. and you will have to vote on the spot. a thoughtful family who is chicagos very own. trade winds blowing through chicago's north side rich king has
not heard president obama say it is strong. we've lost jobs, manufacturing alone up two-thirds of the jobs created are jobs that are low-wage jobs, about 60% are for older people, for a president who doesn't like wal-mart very much sounds like president obama is creating a lot of jobs for wal-mart readers. wages went down, hours worked went down. i don't know what talking points you're working from. gerri: i think there is widespread frustration with how the economy is growing. why aren't we getting a more robust expansion especially when it comes to jobs? i heard if we continue to add jobs month by month like we did this month it would take us nine to 10 years to get back to full employment. >> i would not believe all of those numbers. what you're seeing right now is job growth three times what it was at this point in the 2001 recovery. what you're seeing right w is 32 straight months of job growth. growth model a financial crisis. this is not an ordinary recession. this is the worst crisis and we are doing extremely well. gerri: i feel confident in the numbers i presented. i think karen
for president obama. maybe you heard yesterday that the labor department might delay those all important job numbers this friday before the election. this is from u.p.i. this morning. the labor department says it intends to release the awaited october jobs report on schedule friday despite hurricane sandy but can't be sure yet. we will give you more campaign news as we go along. first, back to phone calls. claudia in sun prairie, wisconsin, a democrat, talking about trust in government during natural disasters. go ahead, claudia. caller: good morning. i do trust in government. what i have a problem with is the obstructionism in congress by the republican party. we should have an infrastructure though in this country. look around. everything is crumbling. europe, avel to asia, come back here and is gee, what is going on? for the past four years, inauguration day, i don't know if it was 12 or 18 prominent republicans, cantor, ryan, et cetera, meeting in a fancy steakhouse to pledge that they will not allow this president to have a second term. that is on inauguration night. these people don't
became the most partisan. then he was going to focus on jobs instead he focused on obama care which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half but doubled it. he said the unemployment rate would be at 5.2% and today we learned it's at 7.9. unemployment is higher today than when he took office. he promised he would propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather he raided $716 from medicare for his obama care plan. he said heed lower healthcare premiums for the average family by $2000 a year which now they're higher. and gasoline the american family pays $2,000 more a year than when the president was lectsed. he said he would work across the aisle on important issues. he has not met on the economy or budget or jobs with either the republican leader of the house or senate since july. so instead of bridging the divide he's made it wider. how has he fallen so sort of what he promised. in part because he never led before or worked across the aisle or understood how jobs are created in the real economy. so today he makes new promise
. as president obama points out, mitt romney's plan for the auto workers of ohio would have actually sent jobs to china. >> he's hoping you remember that it's likely to create jobs in china because is shifts them overseas instead of here in the united states of america. if mitt romney had been president when the auto industry was on the verge of collapse, we might not have an automobile industry today. we'd be buying cars from china instead of selling to them. >> mitt romney's path to the presidency is impossible without ohio's 18 electoral votes. right now winning ohio is not looking good for romney. six ohio polls were released this week. five of them have president obama leading. one is tied. president obama's average lead in ohio is 2.3 points. that's a big lead, seriously. now families in northern ohio have not forgotten what the rescue of the automobile industry did for their state. one in eight ohio jobs are about the automobile industry. this is why mitt romney is doing everything he possibly can to down play the impact of the auto rescue. his political director says the obama campaign
. [video clip] >> let me tell you how i will create 12 million jobs when president obama could not. first, my energy independence policy means more than 3 million new jobs. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates 7 million more. expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training the texas to over 12 million new jobs. -- takes us to 12 million new jobs. host: barack obama for reelection, pointing out the economy is slowly recovering from the 2008 meltdown. the editorial this morning from "the new york times. if there is an election dispute, what happens next? caller: this only proves the factory on of the republicans stole the election. one lady was right, the electoral college is crap. if mitt romney gets an, are we going to war right now? we need to take care of our people and our country here. all we are doing is finding reasons to get involved into other countries when obama and everyone else wants to focus on what is going on in in america today. mitt romney says we will crack down on china. how about the china alone. let'
probably would have voted for obama. i think he did a stellar job. with the correct name. i think you for your programming. host: are there issues you wish the candidates would address more but you think they are not because oregon is not considered a battleground state? caller: jobs of course. we are one of the poorest states. i volunteer at a food bank. i cannot believe how fast we have grown up. because of lack of employment. and it is sad, it is very, very sad. >> thank you for the call. we want to show you a clip of the governor romney yesterday in virginia. one of those swing states. yesterday he campaigned with majority leader eric cantor, a congressman from virginia. we will show you a bit of that now. [video clip] >> leader cantor, when was the last time you met with the president on the economy or the budget? >> he says almost one year. let me tell you, for me to get the things done i just described, i am going to have to reach across the aisle and meet with good democrats that love america just like you love america. and there are good democrats like that. i will meet with
, dividing. he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. and instead, he focused on obama care, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learn that it's actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. he promised that he would propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather, he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his obama care. he said he was going to lower health insurance premiums for the average family by $2,500 a year by now. and actually, they are now $3,000 higher for an average family. and gasoline, the american family now pays $2,000 a year more for gasoline than when he was elected. of course, he also said he was going to work across the aisle on the most important issues. listen to this, he has not met on the economy o
presidency. he said he'd focus on creating jobs, but instead he focused on creating obama care, which killed jobs. he said he would cut the deficit in half, instead it's double what it was. he said he'd get unemployment by now down to 5.2%, and we learned today it ticked up to 7.9%. that's 9 million jobs short. those are real americans. can't find work, 23 million in all can't find work or can't find work that's up to their needs. can only five part-time job. this is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge, and you know, he's got a higher unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. >> the president is also scheduled to speak this hour in ohio. we'll bring that to you live also. the story everyone here in new york is talking about today. will the new york city marathon help the city heal from sandy or make a bad situation worse? we'll spin on that and dive deep into our state of the day where i will make a change on my map as "the cycle" rolls on for a busy friday, november 2nd. begin. tomato, obviously. haha.
-called green energy jobs. >> president obama is picking winners and losers based on connections, based on fads like solyndra. >> we all like wind and solar but you can't drive a car with a windmill on it. >> the past prosperity is not through solar shingles and high speed train. and by the way, i like coal. >> jon: i like it a lot! i give it to my grandkids every christmas! (laughter) so they're picking winners and losers. so here is what it is, the republicans appear to have a principlesed stance that government shouldn't pick winners and losers when the government is run by democrats. but when it's run by them, pick away! (laughter) we'll be right back. -- cheers plewes. welcome back. you know, a lot of congressional races going on also around the country, in fact one senate candidate from indiana just got some really good news. >> i'm supporting richard mourdock for senate. >> i can't believe they are picking winners and losers like that mourdock just snalinged this plumb endorsement last week. let's check in and see what this brash young republican is all about. >> i believe that life begi
